330 ml bottle. Pours a translucent brown color with a small foamy beige head. Rich roasted malt aroma is subtle. Some chocolate notes. Flavor is sweet roasted malt with hints of cola and coffee. Bittersweet malty middle. Dry, nutty finish has a wisp of hop bitterness. Very drinkable. I enjoyed this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wygląd klasyczny ciemny lager, z dobrą pianą - znika ale się osadza. W aromacie słodka kawa z mlekiem, jakby był dodatek laktozy. Chyba odrobina chmielu. W smaku delikatne, z zaznaczoną goryczką, dość czysty słodowy profil, bez dużej paloności. Przyjemne na koniec wieczoru.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown, almost black with some ruby shining through it when it is held up to a light. There is a small tan head that left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is brown bread and roasted barley malts. The taste is roasted barley, some faint notes of chocolate, and sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and drinkability is high.
